Subject [users@httpd] mod_ssl, SSLRequire, and function file("filename") question
Date Thu, 08 Mar 2012 23:08:41 GMT

I have a few questions related to the SSLRequire function in mod_ssl and 
how it works with the file("filename") function.

I have gotten mod_ssl to perform x509 DN authentication via the "in";

SSLRequire  %{SSL_CLIENT_S_DN} in { "/DC=org/DC=mycerts/OU=People/CN=My 
Name" }

The problem is that its not practical for me to use this mechanism as 
the actual list of users will be very large (several thousand) and be 
updated daily. That is why I have been trying to get the 
file("filename") function to work. The problem is that it is not, or at 
least I am not using it the correct way.

  eg. SSLRequire  %{SSL_CLIENT_S_DN} =~ file("/tmp/listofDN.txt")

Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I might get this file 
function to work? Is there a format that file must adhere to?
